An excellent companion to Rodak’s Hematology: Clinical Principles & Applications, this atlas is ideal for helping you accurately identify cells at the microscope. It offers complete coverage of the basics of hematologic morphology, including examination of the peripheral blood smear, basic maturation of the blood cell lines, and discussions of a variety of clinical disorders. Over 400 photomicrographs, schematic diagrams, and electron micrographs visually clarify hematology from normal cell maturation to the development of various pathologies.
- Normal Newborn Peripheral Blood Morphology chapter covers the unique normal cells found in neonatal blood.
- A variety of high-quality schematic diagrams, photomicrographs, and electron micrographsvisually reinforce your understanding of hematologic cellular morphology.
- Spiral binding and compact size make this book easy to use in a laboratory setting.
- Coverage of common cytochemical stains, along with a summary chart for interpretation,aids in classifying malignant and benign leukoproliferative disorders.
- Morphologic abnormalities are presented in chapters on erythrocytes and leukocytes, along with a schematic description of each cell, to provide correlations to various disease states.
- Body Fluids chapter covers the other fluids found in the body besides blood, using images from cytocentrifuged specimens.
- Updated information on the subtypes of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) helps you recognize variant forms of CLL you may encounter in the lab.
